Happy Easter!

Easter, as previously discussed, comes from pagan traditions. This explains why we eat chocolate eggs instead of, say, empty chocolate tombs. So let us discuss the Rekodenzian analogue.

Held on the first day of the fourth month, the Festival of Bread is celebrated around Namupoku Island, including Xotopane. Most agree it was derived from both human and local customs, the latter indicated by the celebrations conforming largely to local norms. It is known as Ɍaa’o aɃaa in the Southern Scrublands language, and in many parts of the Scrublands a meal consisting solely of bread and bread ingredients is eaten.

In Yamarronia, children hunt coloured cakes and offer them to the god Takupu, who is believed to give birth to the sun at the start of every summer (traditional Yamarro thought believes in two seasons, summer and winter). If se does not get ses cakes, there will be no summer, and fundamentalists of the Yamarro religion believe that there is scientific evidence to suggest that the less widely observed the cake-hunting custom is, the duller the summer will be.

Among the human diaspora, the festival has been reappropriated as Breitfest. Loosely based on the Xotopane custom which in turn was influenced by the Southern Scrublands tradition, people eat buns filled with chocolate and sweet paste. Followers of the Abrahamic temple, while not all human, often believe the festival to be connected to the resurrection of the prophet Yezu akaYozefa through bread rising. However, some sects such as the Temple of Pure Abrahamism consider the festival “idol worship” and forbid any of their members from participating.
